Traditional Tuesday 18 – The 5 Core Rudiments #5

TT18 Welcome back to ‘Traditional Tuesday’!
In a bid to improve my traditional grip playing, I’m revisiting the PAS 40 drum rudiments to identify some weak spots in my technique.
Here’s rudiment No.4: The multiple bounce roll (Buzz Roll), one of 5 essential rudiment that I use to diagnose areas of improvement. The 5 rudiments are:

Single Strokes
Double Strokes
Multiple strokes
Multiple Bounce Roll/Buzz Roll

It’s a real education looking back at yourself and identifying elements of your playing that can be improved: stick height/dynamic control, transitions from wrists to fingers, relaxation and accepting the rebound. Investigative practice at its best.

Happy drumming!
